Marianas Knight

(The first book in the Legends of the Desert series)
A novel by

On the first of February, 1896, Albert
Fountain, prominent attorney, legislator,
and tough leader of Indian and outlaw
fighting militia, drove his wagon across
the wild and lonely Tularosa basin of
New Mexico. He and his eight-year-old
son were returning home after a twoweek
meeting with a grand jury to obtain
indictments of ranchers for cattle theft.
Albert's wife, Mariana Perez de
Ovante, believing no one would attack
a man traveling with a little boy, had
begged Albert to take Henry with him.
When Albert acquiesced, she asked
Henry to be her knight and protect his
father. She gave him a carved ivory
horsehead watch fob to remind him of
her pride in his courage.
The historical facts are that on that
windy, freezing day, the first of February
1896, Albert and Henry Fountain disappeared.
Their bodies never found, their
empty wagon miles out in the desert,
their horses gone, and near where their
wagon turned off the main road, a patch
of blood-soaked sand glistening in the
sunlight. Legends say Henry survived
to avenge Albert's murder, but no one
knows for sure... .
